Windows builds time out during cache restore

The Windows file system seems to be a lot slower when restoring e.g. cached node_modules folders than Linux and MacOS, resulting in frequent failing builds due to timeout. Example:

https://travis-ci.org/bkimminich/juice-shop/builds/569393889

In that example the Node.js 12 build on Windows just barely made it to restore the cache in 10min while the Node.js 10 ran into the timeout. I wouldn’t know how to add travis_wait, but either allowing this or producing some ...-progress output by default would be appreciated. Or making Windows file system faster… :slight_smile:

We’re seeing the same issue, not sure if this is new but lately all of our windows builds timeout on cache restore. This is a pretty tiny project too. Just deleted the cache and it seems to be working again.
Would like to see this get fixed!

Can confirm getting the same thing. Is quite frustrating
